Ordet is absolutely amazing. The combination of sublime camera work and exceptional performances give it a real intensity. Whilst being very restrained in all aspects of its narrative, characterisation, visual compositions and structure, it attains an incredibly hypnotic and haunting style.

Movie Reviews (1501-1550) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Simplistic movie about faith and belief is powerful due to it's simple nature and no effects making it a film where one has to accept the words and actions of the characters instead. It is also a fascinating psychological study and an absorbing look into a world where miracles can happen if you only let even the most "crazy" voice be heard instead of being ridiculed. The Downs: It will be too quirky, strange, slow and profound for some to be accepted in their tiny minds."
